Sounds like it is time for a yard sale and then regroup.

That's rough Doc. That does seem like the case, when one thing turns bad it just keeps piling on..

Equipment does take maintenance. It is tough when it all seems to hit at the same time.

Well I am slowly getting things fixed, praise the Lord. Put a new spindle assembly on the lawn mower and it mowed great, just in time too because it has been raining cats and dogs.

I adjusted the clutch on my Suzuki and it is changing gears again. Took it for a ride today, it was actually a pretty decent afternoon.

got a new battery for the craftsman mower, but now it needs a new tire, got one ordered so should be an easy fix.

doc- I'm glad you got a few of your items resolved but remember that you, as well as the rest of us humans, struggle against entropy: "Things (as a whole) always moves from neatly ordered state to untidy chaos" and ""The second law of thermodynamics states that in general the total entropy of any system will not decrease other than by increasing the entropy of some other system."

or maybe the 3rd and 4th lines of Yeats famous post-WWI poem:
"Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,"

Or perhaps most simply explained in Genesis by the fall of Man and inability to achieve perfection on our own because of our inherent flaws.

Now, I need to go work on the entropy of my garage and maybe mow the rest of the lawn...

NonPC , We have been doomed since Eve ate the apple. I myself am probably more flawed than most and it's a miracle I have lived as long as I have. :shock: The fact that an idiot like me can fix anything and actually get it running again is proof enough to me that God does exist and must occasionally have sympathy on me. 8) 8)

Cleaning around the bead should fix bead leaks but yes if you put this stuff in and slosh it around with air in the tire I think it would seal the rim leaks too.

Can't get any air in the tire at all trap, it just blows out around the rim. I let it set too long.

Ether doc. I love using Ether to set rubber on rims. Also grease to make a seal helps.

God also has a sense of humor. If you want proof of that, just take a look at some of the people you run into during a day.

Pretty much sounds like my house Doc. Then I also have an entire restaurant (including a rental apartment) to fix EVERY day. Have you ever dealt with a 20 year old ice machine? The ice machine and I are growing closer, I can pretty much predict now when it will break down. :roll: :roll: :roll:

My ice machine is 51 years old and has a breakdown about every 28 days. :shock: :shock: :lol: :lol:

Be patient doc, in due time that will be corrected and it will be far worse than an ice machine. :roll:
